Re: After using reverse, motorcycle wont start

It could be in the key switch or in the kill switch.

Re: HELP!! NEED FRONT WHEEL

Insurance claim for a new or used is an option. A buddy of mine bent his front rim after hitting a rock and got front and rear new tires out of insurance at the same time.
Another option is to bend it back if it's not cracked.

Re: how do you change fork oil

If your not replacing seals and just changing oil than yes on the removal of the forks.
When I replaced my seals and sliders I also installed drain plugs like the ones on the 1500. Much easier to just change the oil.

Re: shock upgrade

I replaced my rear shock and spring over the winter with a setup from a 12 with very low miles. I did not change the spring to a progressive, I understand it's a bit to tight for my style of riding. Mostly one up. You will definitely feel the difference and mostly on how bad or how saggy your origin...

Re: 2008 GPS Update Questions

YEAH!!!! Not only did it update the look of my GPS to a new map, better distance views, but my XM radio is now as good as my truck in the treed areas of the NW.. I was surprised how crappy the XM was as stock .. Was worth the $99 for sure. :roll: Is this for a newer than 08 model ? I have an 07 and...

Re: Fuel injectors cleaning?

The surge that your having may just need a ECM reset. Start the bike cold and let it idle until the fans come on. Do not touch the throttle at all. Let the fans come on at least once if not twice. Shut the bike off completely, kill switch and key. Restart bike, ECM is reset. I had to do this a coupl...

Re: what tire to buy

I have been using Dunlop E3 on the 1500 then E4 on the 1800 and just have loved them. However I just bought an Avon cobra chrome av91 and will be putting it on next. I got it from American moto tire in Arizona. They where the cheapest and with a $20 rebate.

Re: Brake Fluid

Actually dot 3 & 4 & 5.1are all glycol based and the 3 & 4 I know are interchangeable. The dot 5 is synthetic and is not interchangeable with the others. The 5.1 is a glycol base with a higher heat range.

Re: Front Forks Stiff

Your anti dive sounds like it is stuck. I would disable it myself and then try it. And, or - You could support the front end, take the caps off the forks and cycle the forks by hand to see if there is anything sticking. And, or - If you do change the oil the 2 wheeled bikes should have 10 weight wit...

Re: Another PMT question

It could be that one of the pmt lost or didn't have a gas charge in it. Also the oil should be set by height more than quantity. And isn't the anti dive disabled with a mono shock installe ?

I have the progressive springs and not the pmt in my bike so there's that.

Re: Seat length

Modifying your seat would be a cheaper route and to move the seat back an inch or more your going to get into your backrest.

You could possibly find a used seat and modify it cheaper than aftermarket.
